Yeah, just for the record, I'd let everyone be able to trade partially because of the broker's general bad habit of doing other shit during cravan season. Plus when doubling as bookkeeper I think they prioritize record upkeep due to the sudden influx of stuff on the map.

Also I don't see why you guys are having issues understanding Sus' entries. But then again i have a habit of speaking very archaicly (My own manner of speech is some horrible combination of modern american, late colonial english, 1960s US military and a mess of other languages' convetions sprinkled in) And I think it adds a little character to him. So Ashsaber, you now has the most deaths of us as players/requested dorfings. You want another one?

Ok, I'll try to drop two out of three ap'strophes and mangled spellings or so from now on.  :-[

Spawn can assimilate into other societies (a fact which I'm sure would shock dorf!Mr Frog to no end). A Spawn that assimilated into a goblin society would likely rise to the top very quickly and stay there, seeing as how they're ridiculously hard-to-kill and don't die from old age.
Well that... was kind of a surprise. I sort of figured they'd be innately hostile to any and all non-Spawn forms of (un-)life, given that they tend to tear other invaders and traders to shreds on sight.  :-\

Then again, I assume that is the modus operandi of the Clown Car1), too, and they also occasionally emerge as leaders of civilizations.

Duly noted (you lazy layabout you!). Although to Dorf!Splint's credit, he spent a good amount of time carrying the wounded (the macegoblins got a few nasty blows in) to the hospital, instead of just being On Break or Sleeping all the time.

I think the sole reason Spawn can be integrated is spawn larvae get abducted during world gen. Also, just a thought that occured to me: Could the bookkeeper's upkeep be a sign of an ambish approaching if they've already updated the records and there's suddenly more weapons of foreign origin than there were before?

That would sound reasonable, except who would want to abduct one, let alone be willing to face a horde of Spawn to get it?  :o

IIRC, the weapons (and other possessions) of ambushers also appear in the z-Stocks menu as forbidden, courtesy of the All Knowing Bookkeeper.

I think it would be more beneficial to replace a book-keeper then a broker; appraiser is a lot harder to level and is a bit more vital to the job. All a good organiser does is make updates (and really, who cares?) a bit faster.

Also, big drops in FPS can also detect ambushes early. I've also experienced instances where goblins riding giant olms would stealthily drown and I'd just see corpses appearing in the river from out of nowhere. It was quite scary.

I never really had much of a problem reading Sus's stuff, either. :P As to the broker deal - I only set it to "anyone may trade" when it says they'll be leaving soon. I don't like not having brokers with appraisal skill.

Not a problem on the dorfing. You'll be on the awaiting dwarves list til Sus does otherwise.

And on brokers, it doesn't have to be the broker trading. Whoever you have assigned will still give the value to the guy who actually is trading. Plus every dwarf who trades gives you a back up apprasier if the original dies.

I think the Spawn can also integrate into civs if one of their cities is conquered and the residents are captured.

I personally think it's better this way. Instead of having an entire species that's just arbitrarily evil, you have a race of thinking beings (with a bit of a vicious streak, but still basically people) which have been indoctrinated from the moment of their creation into viewing the rest of the world as their personal chew toy; they're consciously choosing to kill everything based on their own corrupted values instead of just Doing What Spawn DoTM, which I think is scarier.

Plus, they can speak. Perfectly fine in fact, despite thier physiology. Which is equally disturbing. (I had a human adventurer able to communicate with one in a city as if it were any other creature.)
